Corby’s Whiskey — 1960 (Kentucky Derby)


My Kentucky Derby knowledge is miniscule, but I actually looked up to see which horse this 1960 ad is referring to — it’s the 1941 Triple Crown-winner Whirlaway (2:01.4), ridden by Eddie Arcaro, whose record wasn’t broken until 1973 when Secretariat ran it in 1:59.4 (a record that has yet to be beaten, even forty years later!).
